I’m working a meeting this week on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Need some info on Omaha HiLo games. How early do the Omaha HiLo games get started during the week at the Biloxi and Gulfport Grands. What are the usual limits? Any description of game styles will be helpful. (Wild n Crazy to loose/passive?)
Sorry can’t help much. Both Grands have 1-4-8-8 or 4-8 games going when I am there but that is usually on the weekends. Usually one game with half kill. 1-800-WIN2WIN and ask for poker room.
I can only speak for the Biloxi Grand, however, the O/8 game has been going everytime I went there (4-5 times on both weekends and weekdays). Also, I have been there in the middle of the afternoon so I think you have a pretty good chance of finding this game going. As for the game itself, I have played in it a couple of times and would term it (based on my limited experience) basically loose/passive. I have not encountered many maniacs. However, there are some rocks and you better be careful calling without the nuts (especially on the low side).
You should be able to find a game at either Grand most any time. Gulfport plays mostly 1-4-8-8 and Biloxi play 4-8 with a 1/2 kill (an insane amount for the kill is $40). Gulfport sometime spreads a 10-20 and Biloxi always has at least one 10-20 on Friday and Sat and some days during the week. IMHO the 1-4-8-8 game in Gulfport is weaker than the Biloxi game even though there are two or three decent plays in the Gulfport game. The game is almost always loose-passive with the usual suck-outs. The 4-8 game in Biloxi can range from moderate to down right tough. Also many times the week-end 10-20 can be easier than the 4-8.
